I am a maker, illustrator, craft stylist and dog lady.  Though I like moving back and forth between the West Coast and East coast, I am currently planted in Portland, OR with my husband Darren Pasemko and our mystery mutt G.

My illustration and craft styling clients include: Martha Stewart, Pottery Barn, Real Simple Magazine, Ralph Lauren, Food Network, Gourmet, Bon Appetit, O Magazine, One Kings Lane, Parents Magazine, Country Living, Everyday with Rachael Ray, FamilyFun Magazine, Woman’s Day & The Today Show.

I was born in Amsterdam and raised in Topanga and Santa Barbara, CA. I received my BFA in painting at the University of Hawai'i then taught K-7 mixed media art classes at the Honolulu Academy of Arts, Pacific Buddhist Academy and Kahala Elementary School. I lived and worked in Brooklyn, NY for 8 years before migrating to Portland, OR where I started my housewares and design company Scout & Whistle in 2012.
